Sagem-Interstar's Green Center Reveals Environmental Impact of Standard Fax

By Michelle Robart, TMCnet Editor

After ending a successful year despite the economic downturn, Sagem-Interstar, a pioneer and global leader in T.38 “software only” or “boardless” Fax over IP (FoIP) solutions, continues to promote green solutions through its newly launched “Green Corner” section on the company’s Web site.
As people gain a renewed interest in preserving the environment, companies feel more compelled than ever to provide products and services in an eco-friendly way.
Sagem-Interstar (News - Alert) is doing its part to protect the environment with its XMediusFAX FoIP solution, which helps customers “go green” and save money. As a software-only IP fax solution, XMediusFAX has no hardware dependencies and thrives in a virtual machine environment. This makes a great deal of business and administration sense, because managing numerous physical resources, often remotely, from a single console yields highly efficient network management, as well as cost and resource savings.
XMediusFAX eases the “going green” process by helping customers who have or are migrating to VoIP-based network infrastructures shift their daily faxing requirements towards an all software solution. By doing this, customers gain a reduced hardware footprint whereby fax machines, analog fax lines, fax boards, as well as consumables such as paper and toner and the cost of maintaining the fax hardware infrastructure are significantly reduced.

On Sagem-Interstar’s new Green Corner site, curious professionals can find interesting “green facts” and use the Green Calculator to key in the amount of faxes their office transmits and receives daily to discover the environmental impact. The results are pretty eye-opening. Although more companies are striving to become paperless, there are still more than 100 billion fax pages transmitted around the globe on a yearly basis.

In addition, interested parties can download the company’s FoIP-Driven Green Solutions White Paper, read the “Top 10 Reasons how XMediusFAX Enables Green Optimized Solutions,” and learn about Virtualization Strategies for a Greener Workplace.
Users can also discover the financial and environmental benefits of adopting a Fax over IP (FoIP) server solution such as XMediusFAX. Some of the advantages include:
-- Low energy cost
-- Reduced carbon footprint
-- Lower telecom costs
-- Improved productivity
-- Less paper/ toner use
In a large company, Sagem-Interstar’s network fax server solutions can eliminate up to one ton of paper use per day - or up to 200 tons (0.18 million kg) a year. In addition, over 1.8 million gallons (7 million liters) of fresh water are required to produce a year's worth of paper- enough to fill a city reservoir.
To learn more about the environmental benefits of adopting FoIP solutions and discover what your company can do to reduce its environmental impact, visit Sagem-Interstar’s Green Corner.
